Allan Dias

Allan Dias anchored some of PiL’s pinnacle recordings during his 1986-92 tenure wherein Mr. Lydon gravitated towards a more commercial "alternative dance" posture.   

Utilizing his formidable reggae / jazz rhythmic and harmonic chops coupled with a warm tone and precise articulation – Dias’ work on Happy? 9, and That What is Not seamlessly bridges world and punk.

In addition to his PiL pedigree, Allan worked with Sun Ra’s Dawson Miller, Pharoah Sanders, James Blood Ulmer, and helmed his own ensembles, among other musical endeavors.
